A couple of years ago,our daughter and her friend,went on a month’s adventure around Australia,as they wanted to do something special before they had their 30th birthdays..One of the first places they visited,was Airlie beach in Queensland.They decided they would like to attempt a bit of Snorkelling,but on seeing the outfits they were expected to wear,they decided against it…and can you blame them?…We had a popular children’s TV programme here,called the Teletubbies..wonder if it was based on these .Lol I appreciate they are worn for a reason,but they made me smile.:o))

Another case of the Oz sense of humour…

They certainly had a wonderful holiday,made more so,with the happy sense of fun,of everyone they met…so lots of happy memories

OH,I haven't heard that expression for a long time,Lou.We were always being asked if we were Geordies when I lived in Cumbria,by " foreigners" Lol,and it is similar,but I can still tell the difference in the accent...

Great photos, Bloomer! Yes I know those suits look ridiculous ... but they are for protection.

You're right ... about the jellyfish! We try to avoid swimming or snorkelling in the open ocean around here from November through to May because it's what we call 'Marine Stinger Season'. The ocean is full of quite dangerous jellyfish ... and the sting from some can actually be lethal!

We swim in areas that have stinger nets or enclosures at that time of year ... or we wear these fabulous creations!

Looks like they have been tangoed !!!!! Hilarious, but as Berneih says they are for a reason. Did you see on that notice that it is from the 'window police' ?

30 Aug, 2010

 

Just found this, they are brilliant:-)

30 Aug, 2010

 

Glad you like them,Ba,though it was time for a bit more humour..:o)),Do you think we could get them to catch on here? lots of nasties in some of ours too...Don't fancy the yellow one,so not my colour..!! Lol.

30 Aug, 2010

 

Hmmm not mine either! That was my little brother ;o)

31 Aug, 2010

 

I think I'd need something a little more flattering Bloomer and maybe if they added a flower pattern and water wings (can't swim) I would give them a try. Thinking about it...we could have done with them on Tenby beach last year, they would have kept us warm:-)

31 Aug, 2010

 

Poor little boy,Pip,whose idea was it to dress him in yellow ? dear dear..!!

31 Aug, 2010

 

Me too,Ba,but worth thinking about to keep out the cold....never been to Tenby,but Russ keeps saying he would like to go....did you like it there ..apart from the weather...

31 Aug, 2010

 

Loved it, but then I'm strange. I did a blog on it last year, we went last week in July, if you're interested???? Go on and you can put a comment on (I count) there aren't many lol:-)
